New Competition Jurisdictions: Shaping Policies and Building Institutions

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Richard Whish and Christopher Townley, both King’s College Dickson Poon School of Law have edited New Competition Jurisdictions: Shaping Policies and Building Institutions.

BOOK ABSTRACT: This book focuses on the problems faced by newly-established competition authorities, and on shaping policies and building institutions in those jurisdictions. In particular four key issues encountered by new competition jurisdictions are considered, namely: the challenges and obstacles to adopting competition laws; institutional challenges and choices, with a specific focus on deterrence; the global perspective, with a specific focus on mergers; and a discussion of how to help young academics in new jurisdictions. Theoretical analysis is informed by practice throughout, and in particular by those considered to be at the cutting edge, either working in new competition authorities or from specialists advising them on a daily basis (such as those in the OECD and UNCTAD).
